What They're Saying About Linda

"Linda's class was a revelation in plotting! Her straightforward approach is clear, concise and filled with 'Ah-ha, now I get it,' epiphanies. In just a few hours I learned not only how well known plot structures function, but how to apply those keen insights to my own work. Without a doubt it's far and away the best seminar out there -- it's the last class I'll ever take, because it's the only class I ever needed."
